We examine the efficacy of Dark-mode plasmonics as a platform for enhanced magneto-optics. Dark-mode of a small particle consists of two co-existing equal-intensity and mutually opposing dipolar excitations. Each of these two opposing dipoles may even resonate at or near the dark-mode frequency, but the net dipole moment vanishes due to the mutual cancelation between the opposing dipoles. We show that application of external magnetic bias may alleviate the intense destructive interference… 

Optical tristability and ultrafast Fano switching in nonlinear magnetoplasmonic nanoparticles

We consider light scattering by a coated magneto-plasmonic nanoparticle (MPNP) with a Kerr-type nonlinear plasmonic shell and a magneto-optic core. Such structure features two plasmon dipole modes,

The dark side of plasmonics.

The excitation and optical detection of a collective dark plasmonic mode from individual plAsmonic trimers is demonstrated and the strong confinement of energy in these modes and their associated near fields hold great promise for achieving strong coupling to single photon emitters.

Surface plasmon resonance enhanced magneto-optics (SuPREMO): Faraday rotation enhancement in gold-coated iron oxide nanocrystals.

Enhanced optical Faraday rotation in gold-coated maghemite (gamma-Fe(2)O(3)) nanoparticles is reported and may enable design of nanostructures for remote sensing and imaging of magnetic fields and for miniaturized magneto-optical devices.

Probing bright and dark surface-plasmon modes in individual and coupled noble metal nanoparticles using an electron beam.

The rich structure of bright and dark surface-plasmon modes localized in individual and coupled gold nanoparticles is unveiled by electron-energy-loss spectroscopy performed in a scanning transmission electron microscope, and spatially resolved maps constructed from the spatially and spectrally resolved energy-loss signals are shown to mimic rather well the near fields calculated for external illumination.

Ultrafast acousto-magneto-plasmonics

Surface plasmon–polaritons are electromagnetic waves that propagate along metal–dielectric interfaces and exist over a wide range of frequencies. They have become popular research tools owing to

Complex modes and near-zero permittivity in 3D arrays of plasmonic nanoshells: loss compensation using gain [Invited]

We report on the possibility of adopting active gain materials (specifically, made of fluorescent dyes) to mitigate the losses in a 3D periodic array of dielectric-core metallic-shell nanospheres. We

Electrically controlled one-way photon flow in plasmonic nanostructures

It is theoretically demonstrate that magnetic field induced by the direct electric current flowing in metallic constituents of plasmonic nanostructures alters the material parameters and thus the optical signal flow, and this principle is used for the design of an electrically controlled subwavelength optical isolator.

Magnetized spiral chains of plasmonic ellipsoids for one-way optical waveguides.

When a linear chain of plasmonic nanoparticles is subject to longitudinal magnetic field, it exhibits optical Faraday rotation, which forms a waveguide that permits one-way propagation only, within four disjoint frequency bands.
